Microsoft is terminating Nokia's Android program and company's CEO Satya Nadella said that select future Nokia X-series designs will be transformed into Windows Phone devices. However, there's no specific answer in which direction Nokia X2 is set to sail, which was already announced, but not launched in the market at the time of announcement of this change of strategy.
However, we received indication that the Nokia X2 may not be cancelled after all. An authorized Nokia reseller in Pakistan, called Advance Telecom, is heavily promoting the phone on its Facebook page.
Now, while there's no official word from Microsoft regarding the particular future of the Nokia X2, this is a pretty solid indication that the phone was too far in its production cycle when Satya Nadella broke the news about changing the course of business.
On the flip side, the Nokia warranty and service provider could just be a bit behind the curve. We wouldn't count on this, as firing 18,000 employees is hard to easily get unnoticed. We have our fingers crossed.
Thanks for the tip, tayyab!
